IL Section ASCE EWRI & APWA Construction Site Tour and Summer Intern Sendoff BBQ
August 2 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Join ASCE Environmental Water Resources Institute and APWA Suburban Branch on August 2nd for a Construction Site Tour and Summer Intern Sendoff BBQ!
We will be touring MWRD’s Buffalo Creek Reservoir Expansion Project, located in Lake County’s Buffalo Creek Forest Preserve. The project aims to expand storage capacity for the reservoir and alleviate flooding along Buffalo Creek within Buffalo Grove and downstream areas (Wheeling, Des Plaines, etc…). This project includes significant environmental improvements while providing an additional 58.6M gallons of stormwater detention which will help to protect over 2,000 structures downstream.
Following the tour, we will have a BBQ (food and drink provided) at the forest preserve to celebrate area interns and encourage them to come back to the greater Chicago area and get involved with professional organizations. For this to work, we need you to INVITE YOUR INTERNS! Most interns are not a part of our organizations and will only know about this event if you invite them.
Cost: FREE – Interns
$30 – Professionals
$100 – Sponsor (includes 1 ticket)
